Tessa Schlesinger submitted her first writing for publication as an eleven year old in 1962. It was published. Thereafter, there was no stopping her. Since then, she has been employed in various fields which utilized her writing talent, including ad agencies, mail order companies, and SEO content writing businesses. She has been hired to interview celebrities (Neil Gaiman was her favourite) for celebrity magazines, act as script doctor for a movie already in production, as well as write memoirs for others in the guise of ghostwriter. She has also written for print newspapers and print magazines. Her digital writing career on the web started in 1995. She has published several books as well as worked as an editor for two publishing houses in London. She won her first national writing award in 1970 as an 18 year old.

She studied at the London School of Journalism, Writer’s Bureau (UK), the University of South Africa, the University of London, as well as City College and Mesa College in San Diego (California). She also has a City and Guilds qualification in web design (London).

Her portfolio can be seen at https://www.slideshare.net/Awriter/portfolio-7632999

She is primarily a reader, thinker, artist, and student of academia. Her interests include, the sciences (geology, environmental sciences, psychology, neurology, biology, and various life sciences), architecture, interior design (degree with honours), archaeology, global economics, global politics, fashion, history, and travel.

Tessa spent ten years as a staff volunteer for San Diego Comic Con International in California, dealt eight or nine different casino games professionally on three continents, once went to movies with a princess, twice dated a Lord, and fell on her face more times than she can count. She is now an old woman, still has a pen in her hand, and is currently working on all the dreams that never were in Cape Town, South Africa.
